It’s the final full month of the Summer, the kids are about to go back to school and we’re closing out the season with a few of our favorite brunch spots in Austin to fulfill those Sunday-funday hunger pains.
Brunch is undoubtedly an institution in Austin, but no one wants to ruin their Sunday-funday brunch experience with tasteless food or watered down mimosas, so we’ve selected our five favorite spots in town perfect to close out the month of August.
The Art of Italian Brunching
Chef Jacob Weaver at Juliet Ristorante has mastered the art of Italian brunching in Austin with his inspired menu. Mixing traditional Italian dishes with some basic brunch necessities, Chef Weaver and his team hase created a tasty guide to kick-off your Sunday-Funday at Juliet.
Juliet has a variety of classic brunch headliners on the menu, including Steak & Eggs and Eggs Florentine, both made with an Italian twist. Take a trip to classic Italy and order the Brunch Risotto, Genovese Pizza or Rigatoni Pomodoro.
